DRX has announced the signing of Jung “Foxy9” Jae-sung, bolstering their roster with a sixth man ahead of the VCT 2023 season.
According to VCT roster rules, partnered teams will need to field a minimum of six players.
The new addition comes just a day before the October 15 roster lock, where teams will need to submit a preliminary roster to Riot Games.
The South Korean youngster played for HolyMolly in his most recent matches. However, he is best known for his time on Japanese team REIGNITE, competing in VCT Japan Stage 1 and 2.

The 17-year-old will join DRX in the Pacific league next year, part of a roster that has established itself as the best in Korea by a mile.
The organization will be looking to extend that dominance against other Asia-Pacific teams, including other regional giants like Zeta Division and Paper Rex. They have also been among the most consistent teams internationally all year, sailing out of the group stages and making deep playoffs runs.
Foxy9 has played the most games on Jett throughout his career, only occasionally flexing onto agents like Sage, Breach, and Chamber in recent months.

- Kim “stax” Gu-taek
- Goo “Rb” Sang-min
- Kim “Zest” Gi-seok
- Yu “BuZz” Byung-chul
- Kim “MaKo” Myeong-kwan
- Jung “Foxy9” Jae-sung
The South Korean powerhouse is the only Pacific league organization other than RRQ to have announced a new player signing.
It is not immediately clear how the team will utilize its sixth man. The squad already has a Jett main in BuZz, the team’s main duelist at Valorant Champions 2022, while Rb has also shown the ability to flex onto the agent as well.
The squad will make its VCT 2023 debut in the 30-team kickoff tournament in São Paulo, Brazil.
